Dodgers | Carl Crawford suffers setback

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (elbow) suffered a setback with is surgically repaired right elbow and will be shut down for a week. Manager Don Mattingly said his status for Opening Day is in question.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford's injury likely opens up more playing time for Jerry Hairston Jr. and Skip Schumaker to open the season. It also clouds his fantasy potential because he has been injured for two years, and this continues to surface. Temper your expectations for him this season because it keeps flaring up as he's a risky pick rather than an undervalued/rebound pick.
